The tragic story of former University of Michigan student Jeffrey Pyne will be the season premiere this Sunday at 9:00 pm on the new show Deadline: Crime with Tamron Hall.
Pyne was convicted in 2012 of the second degree murder of his mother Ruth Pyne. He is currently waiting for his appeal attorney to file his paperwork.
Pyne is my family friend and former student, and recently I visited him in a Muskegon prison.
Show will feature yours truly
Due to my relationship with Jeffrey, last spring I was interviewed for the Deadline: Crime with Tamron Hall show.
An entire crew came to my mother’s house, and it was quite the ordeal.
This interview was quite in-depth compared to my previous interviews about this case for People Magazine, Good Morning America and Fox News.
They talked to me about my perception of the unfair murder trial of Jeff Pyne, which was based on circumstantial evidence. Their questioning focused on my investigation and daily coverage of the murder trial.
I am anxious to see how the show turns out. If I’m lucky, they will only show me for a split second, like the Dateline show did recently after interviewing my son Steven in detail about the case.
Maybe this show will causes someone, somewhere to come forward with information about the case.

Where can this new crime show be found?
The program can be found on the Investigation Discovery Channel, according to Peter L. Bull, Producer for NBC News - Peacock Productions.
I figured that we wouldn’t get the channel, but most of us do. It is easily found by putting in a zip code and internet provider at this link.
